Omtale: A Cultural History of Japanese Buddhism
A Cultural History of Japanese Buddhism offers a comprehensive, nuanced, and chronological account of the evolution of Buddhist religion in Japan from the sixth century to the present day. * Traces each period of Japanese history to reveal the complex and often controversial histories of Japanese Buddhists and their unfolding narratives * Examines relevant social, political, and transcultural contexts, and places an emphasis on Japanese Buddhist discourses and material culture * Addresses the increasing competition between Buddhist, Shinto, and Neo-Confucian world-views through to the mid-nineteenth century * Informed by the most recent research, including the latest Japanese and Western scholarship * Illustrates the richness and complexity of Japanese Buddhism as a lived religion, offering readers a glimpse into the development of this complex and often misunderstood tradition
